Pasadena, CA: Gamble House

Online House Tour

The Gamble House in Pasadena, California is an internationally renowned example of American Arts & Crafts architecture and design. Architects and brothers Charles and Henry Greene (of the firm Greene & Greene) designed the house and its furnishings in 1908 as a winter residence for David and Mary Gamble of Cincinnati, Ohio.

The architects worked closely with the couple in the design of the house, even incorporating a family crest among the motifs. The design demonstrated the Gambles’ love of nature and the Southern California landscape, depictions of which in wood, metal, art glass and semi-precious stones are woven throughout the interiors. Other artistic themes of the house are drawn from Japanese art and focus on the use of natural materials, attention to detail, and fine craftsmanship. The critical relationship between indoor and outdoor living spaces is another hallmark.

Join Royal Oak for a virtual tour to this National Historic Landmark by Jennifer Trotoux, Director of Collections, Gamble House. We will explore the residence with its open and spacious rooms, filled with furnishings designed by the architects just for this commission and woodwork of extraordinary detail and finish quality. The program will include an illustrated talk about the house’s story followed by a live look at some of the significant spaces and features of the interior.
